    Full details

    Your ticket to incredible 360-degree views across New York City and beyond! There are a million things to experience in New York City, but only one way to truly see them all. Head to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and experience the Big Apple like never before.

    Our guide to One World Observatory Skip-the-Line Ticket

    Start your unique experience at the One World Observatory by using your gate-ready ticket to skip the main ticket line. Head straight for the security check and Sky Pod elevator that whisks visitors to the top of the tallest building in the Western hemisphere in less than 60 seconds. Accompanying the rapid journey, an incredible high-definition time-lapse video plays on the glass walls of your Sky Pod elevator recreating the development of New York City’s skyline from the 1500s to today’s skyscrapers.

    When you get to the top, be prepared to explore three levels filled with innovation and inspiration and, of course, the amazing panoramic views of New York City and beyond. See the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Woolworth Building and the Statue of Liberty. From your lofty position, you can even look down on the helicopters that take tourists high over Manhattan and see just how many boats fill the surrounding water. 

    If you want to complete the day with a drink, a bite to eat or dinner, One World Observatory offers three distinct options on the 101st floor, all of them with a setting that is truly and magnificently one-of-a-kind.


    One World Observatory is located at One World Trade Center at the corner of West and Vesey Streets in Downtown Manhattan.
